Moving and Packing can be a very tedious task, its always best to pre-plan and organise yourselfย before thinking to move.

To make your moving pleasant and smooth, I’ve collated a few tips which should be helpful ๐Ÿ™‚

Before your move:

  1. Clean and scrub the new residence before you move, the last thing you want is to be scrubbing a toilet as you move in!
  2. Check with your security if you have any concerns
  3. Check with your building maintenance if you notice anything damaged or your air conditioner not working.
  4. Take a picture of each room and save this, in-case when you decide to leave the land lords can’t blame you for any damage you have not done.
  5. Check if water and electricity is working
  6. Contact charity or second hand furniture pick up to pick any of your unwanted items, always best to de-clutter before moving.
  7. Stop grocery shopping a week before, and clean out your fridge
